About National Breastfeeding Awareness Month

On August 6, 2011, the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) officially declared that August is National Breastfeeding Month. The USBC ‘s theme for  2023 is This is Our Why — conceived to shine a light on the many and varying reasons why this work is so important and center the conversation on the babies and families who need our support. USBC invites everyone to celebrate mothers and lactating parents and work to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding and human milk feeding for the 13th annual National Breastfeeding Month.
